The children are Boy (17), Girl (15) and Boy (13)
Girlfriend is applying for contact /residence of all the children. As her husband has alienated the older children there is a need for some" relationship healing". Which is why NYAS has recommended the family attends the Anna Freud Centre.
Girlfriend has Legal Aid
In October I think
My question is about funding. NYAS received letter from LSC that said that funding for Anna Freud was refused because it had not been spread across all 3 parties (girlfiend, children and husband). The court order had stipulated that as husband could not afford it (he did not get Legal Aid) the cost would be covered by girlfriend & Children's :Legal Aid.
As yet the solicitor has not informed the girlfriend.
If the Solicitor receives a refusal what are the options to move forward?
Is it -Appeal to LSC, go back to court to get new court order, find the money to cover a third of the cost ??
